    I just finished the first season today, and am about to start the second season. I gotta admit, the ending was very good. I loved it, and have to say that it's been really fun watching the first season. It was a happy ending, and a very rare one. Something that was completely unexpected to me in a series like this.

    Seeing as how I avoided most spoilers, what can I expect from this anime? Bigger deaths, and more violence I'm guessing...

    Actually it's the entire opposite. Less deaths and little to 0 gory loli violence. The second season just wraps up and explains a lot of the unexplained stuff in the first season. I hope you don't get turned off by that because the 2nd season was just as good as the first season IMO.

    What? More mindfuck! NO!! :arg Oh well. :LOS

    Hm...Nah I probably won't. Once I'm hooked I'll watch everything that has to do with this anime, so there no worries about me quitting this anime.

    Congratulations on finishing the first season Zero. ^^

    Kai is a lot different but I also think that it's just as good. :amuse

    Kai's opening is enough to know that season two has a different theme.

    The first season's is eerie and mysterious.
    The second season's is emotional and motivating.

    Congrats for finishing the first season, Zero. As people have said here, Kai is a whole new different ballgame than the first season. You'll still get mindfucks, but of a different kind. What you will discover here will surprise you. :nod

    Well, you still have a long ways to go. I just wish that you can catch up even before the season ends by next month. Which is really sad, now that I think of it. :cry

    Don't worry I'll catch up, by tomorrow I should be at 10, at the least. That's if Super Mario Galaxy can keep my brothers away from the computer for me to download the episodes. :p

    It's good they switched the themes around a bit, it'll still be able to maintain it's power over me that way. Hanyuu seems like a blast to have around, and probably makes life entertaining for Rika sometimes. :amuse

    Season 2 is basically a giant, walking billboard message saying "never give up and have faith in your friends and anythings possible" xDD

    I love it by the way and there are some parts in season 2 that still get my blood boiling >_<

    :nod Yup. I'll be starting episode 1 in a few seconds, and nothing will stop me from watching it.

    Edit: Uh...Mindfuck much?! I thought Keichii was the one who lived through the incident, not Rena. (Although older Rena does look hot)

    Oh I see. That would explain it, but Keichii lived, and then later died in the hospital right? Episode 2 was pretty good, cutest thing I've seen all day would have to be Rika in that maid outfit with the pacifier in her mouth. I wish I could take her home...

    No, you're getting this confused with Tatarigoroshi-hen, the arc where Keiichi "survived" at the end. Episode one of Kai is actually an epilogue of the last arc in the first season.

    Basically, the gas disaster happened, and everyone died except for Rena because she was arrested and taken to a hospital (she wasn't in Hinamizawa when the disaster happened).

    Oh I see...That clears things up a bit more then. Kinda sucks she was the only one to live. Then Rika was killed after that whole school Incident the next day, and then the disaster hit the same day as well.

    Rena did get mindfucked. Although she didn't seem to be on the brink of going all crazy and stuff. So do they explain who killed Rika in this season? Or is it a different person every time?

    Yep, it's explained. :amuse

    Might not be the same person that kills Rika everytime, but it's always the same group everytime.

    Group? ...The only group I know of is those guys in the white van. Thinking about it now, I completely ruled them out for her death.

    Nah. It's alright. I'll still be pretty shocked, since it didn't show how she died.

    [Edit]
    I thought it was clear after the Dark Rika corners and episode 3. ><

    But it turns out that it's not clear until later. :doh

    Sorry again, I'll just stop posting in this thread for a while.
